    Im hoping someone here can help me out. I had installed a Kenwood DNX893S expensive stereo on a 2013 yukon denali. The features are great and better than the stock. I also have the maestro so i retained mostly everything (lost ability to have 2 channels on the wireless headphones). The problem i am having is with the wireless headphones. I have noticed that it works off and on. When its not working i have to turn the car off and than back on a few times to get it to work. I had it at the GMZ dealership a few times. The first time they said it was the IR transmitter-i replaced it and i did he same thing. The second time, they told me it was the control module, they replaced it and it still did the same thing. I also took it to the car stereo place that did the install and they checked the kenwood out and said the problem is somewhere in the wiring because everything was working up to the factory harness. Im looking for help as i just want my kinds to be able to listen to their movie and my wife and i dont have to hear it. any ideas what the problem is?

    im not sure what was used, but when it works it works fine. I just have to turn the car off and than on again a time or two at startup. I can tell if its working by visualizing the red lights on the IR in the overhead console. Thats the only issue....everything else works...steering wheel controls, back up cam (except the distance lines are static and no longer dynamic and do not turn with steering wheel anymore). its just odd that it takes a engine restart to make it work. when the headphones do not work, im still getting a picture to the monitor just no sound through the IR transmitter.

    I hope I am not violating any forum rules by sharing an external URL. Here is a link to Crutchfield's Research Garage which goes into detail about the options available on the NNBS/GMT900 Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, Yukon XL, etc. Crutchfield Research Garage . Even if you do not order the parts from Crutchfield they have a wealth of knowledge and pretty much list all the parts you need based on your Make/Model/Year. If you purchase from them it comes with their mastersheet that provides step-by-step instructions on how to install everything and retain the factory options.
